Breath of the Wild sets record for highest number of perfect scores on Metacritic


The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild has officially out performed some of the most popular critically esteemed games of all time.

BOTW has received almost universal positive reviews, so this doesn’t come as surprising that it’s breaking yet another record.

While it’s not the highest-rated game of all time on Metacritic, lining up behind other titles such as:  Ocarina of Time, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 and GTA 4, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild now boasts the largest number of perfect review scores of any game tracked by the site.

Redditor /u/koolcandy was the first to notice this, with BOTW’s astounding 43 flawless review scores passing by previous record holding titles Super Mario Galaxy 2 as well as The Last of Us. Each title earned an impressive 42 themselves.

Some may argue that this metric is meaningless as the number of varying outlets that review a title fluctuate by release, but never the less, this is just one more notable achievement for Nintendo.

It’s nice to see that it was well worth the wait and that the hype for the game was definitely worthy. BOTW is the go getter in the launch lineup and the Switch has sold really well out of the gate in its 3 primary regions.

Although it may not be able to draw on install bases available to multi-platform titles or exclusives on other certain platforms, I think its safe to say that we may be seeing even more record breaking news coming from this game in the near future.  Let’s stay tuned and see what emerges.
